Cooking Tips For Making Chicken Fries:

  • Don’t defrost the fries first- Put them into the air fryer, completely frozen. If they start to thaw, they could begin to get mushy.
  • If you are serving these to children, let them cool off for about 10 minutes before serving. They are very hot!
  • If you want to make a large number of frozen chicken fries, cook them in batches. You don’t want to crowd them in the fryer since that will prevent them from getting crispy.
